Jason Leonard wins Dallaglio & Keating Golf Event
July 22, 2011

Lawrence Dallaglio and Ronan Keating were both left empty handed as rugby legend Jason Leonard emerged victorious in the pair's charity golf event at the Algarve 's Monte da Quinta resort.

Former England captain Dallaglio and Boyzone singer Keating hosted more than 50 people for the star-studded three-day competition, in aid of Cancer Research UK , held at the prestigious resort on the Quinta do Lago estate.

Comedian Patrick Kielty, footballer Lee Dixon and rugby players Jeremy Guscott, Ben Clarke and Mike Catt were among those taking part, but it was Leonard's tally of 77 Stableford points from two rounds on Quinta do Lago's Laranjal course saw him finish as the top celebrity.

In addition to golf, competitors sampled the hospitality of Monte da Quinta's various restaurants across the three days, including the final day barbeque and prizegiving, while entertainment came in the form of a performance from Keating, a jazz band, a Q&A session with some of the famous attendees and various fundraising activities, with the event generating a six-figure sum for the charity.

Cancer Research UK 's support partnerships manager, Nikki Williams, said: "The Dallaglio & Keating Golf Event was a huge success raising much-needed funds for Cancer Research UK .

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the stunning Monte Da Quinta Suites which was the perfect setting for our guests. Everything from the stylish rooms through to the extremely attentive and accommodating staff made our experience all the more special."

Located in the heart of the prestigious Quinta do Lago estate, Monte da Quinta boasts a collection of 132 self-catering suites and a range of two and three-bedroom townhouses and spacious villas. All townhouses and villas come with private pools.

The resort is an ideal base for a lifestyle vacation, located close to the Algarve 's famous golden beaches and surrounded by leisure options including championship golf, tennis and water sports. On-site there are a number of dining options, an extensive Kids' Club and the Magnolia Spa.
